If you find your cricut mat is slipping please get kerry's husband to clean your rollers!!!! lol!!!

In all seriousness peeps..If you find your cricut mat is slipping during cuts it may be that your rollers need a good old clean.

Cricut Mat not sticky...

Post  loopylou on Thu Jan 06, 2011 1:47 pm

When my crciut mats feel as if they are lossing their stickiness I fill my washing up bowl with warm water and a squeeze of fairy liquid and give them a good scrub with my washing brush. Then I give them a good shake and leave them to dry naturally flat on the draining board, they dry all sticky again.

Here's a recipie from Pam for sorting them out.

Take 2 shamefully bendy and tatty 'b' plates and place on a baking tray!! Preheat the oven to 160c. Bake for 10 mins and allow to cool. If still bendy when cooled pop them back in for another 10 minutes.



Thank you Pam xxxxx

Just a heads-up. Doing the oven thing weakens the plates and they are likely to crack dramatically and with a huge noise when you start using them again. Using the bendy plates still works, so if you want them to live to a ripe old age, just use them bendy!

Dont worry Lou as you wanted it removing I have totally removed it for you. If ever you post anything you want removing message me one way or another and I will remove the post rather than leaving a blank post - hope that makes sense!

Hi Queenie. Here's my reply direct from the French Alps Very Happy My hubby says most of the muck gets stuck in the grooves of the metal rollers. He used a very fine flat head screwdriver, just to prize everything out. Hope this works for you.

Another tip for making sure your paper/card stock is stuck to the mat. I have a breyer that never gets used for its proper purpose but it is excellent for smoothing down paper onto a mat to ensure no air bubbles are behind it.

I concur, I use my breyer exclusively for this and for making sure I get the whole of a background stamp properly!
